AMF Thermatex® acoustic ceilings by Knauf AMF have featured in one of the UK’s first state of the art training facilities, resembling a functioning A&E hospital for University of Sunderland student nurses and paramedics.

A £3.5 million transformation has been undertaken on the former office building, becoming a modern facility, featuring two mock wards, assessment suites, a mock Patient Transfer Suite and an industry-standard Isolation Room to give students a realistic experience of working with medical equipment.

With it being paramount that the building materials used do not spread infection, the AMF Thermatex® range of ceilings are manufactured from mineral wool, made from natural, sustainable and renewable raw materials.

These offer solutions that meet strict hygiene requirements and high standards for fire protection and acoustics.

Thermatex® Alpha Hygena tiles are especially designed to stop the growth of bacteria and fungi on the ceiling surface and supreme acoustics assist the recuperation of
patients.

They also offer Class A sound absorption, helping to create a quiet
environment, in which patients are not disturbed by noise in adjacent corridors.

The smooth, white, smart aesthetic of Thermatex® Fine Stratos helps
create a light, whilst the surface resists dust and dirt which is ideal for clean.

Thermatex® Fine Stratos provides phenomenal acoustic control and
Thermatex® Aquatec is perfect for washroom and wet areas, as it offers incredible humidity resistance, as well as high sound absorption and being easy to clean.

AMF Thermatex® ceilings are speedy and simple to instal, helping to ensure a project stays on schedule and within budget.

Executive Ceilings and Partitions Director Nigel Conley has installed Knauf AMF
ceilings in many buildings; he said they always try to work with Knauf AMF products as they are consistently delivered on time, simple to install and, on top of this, the Knauf AMF team are always on hand to answer any questions.
